never heard a bad version of this song...
Never heard a bad version of this song......but my favorite version would have to be Willie Lofton's, which he recorded as "Dark Road Blues" and added a savage fret-tapping riff that sounds literally like he's beating the E string against the frets with his fist. Tommy's is slower and sedate but has a nice menacing undercurrent to it.
My fave Tommy Johnson song, "Canned Heat Blues", is also available elsewhere on archive.org.

Nice to hear a nice clear MP3 of this tune. I wonder if anyone can upload "Cool Drink of Water Blues", another great Tommy Johnson song?
